Speaking on ITV, per Hammers News, Defoe said: “He was brilliant to be honest. People always spoke about David Moyes being miserable but then he came and he really impressed me.

His sessions, everything was with the ball, little rondos, possessions, attention to detail was unbelievable. Set-pieces, and all the meetings.

What impressed me was how he treated the senior players. He wanted you to control the dressing room. He was just fantastic and it’s not surprised me the job he has done here.”
